He has called us "by" or "to" his own glory in 2 Peter 1:3?
The difference is due to manuscript variations.
Some MSS. give the simple dative of the instrument (ἰδίᾳ δόξῃ), and others the preposition with the genitive (διὰ δόξης).
At https://biblehub.com/2_peter/1-3.htm, 18 versions use "by" and only 3 use "to".
2 Peter 1:3 NIV:
His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
who called us to his own glory and excellence
OP: I think "called..to" suggests destiny. And "called..by" the effective means.
Both can be justified theologically. I prefer ESV in this case. Later in the same chapter:
17 He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
Jesus received glory. We are to receive this same glory by being the children of God. ESV is better than NIV for this interpretation. We are destined to Jesus' glory.
